Science at the Service of Beauty since 1926. Dr. Alexandre Lamotte began experimenting with skin care formulas in the late 1800’s. In search of cosmetic efficiency he developed a professional aesthetic method allied to medical diagnosis. Using collaborative research done with dermatologists, skin care formulations were created using the idea of skin types. Dr. Lamotte’s mentee, pharmacist Georges Gay, took over after his passing, and in 1926, the brand Academie Scientifique de Beaute’ was formally created. This makes Academie the very first brand of skin care designed to serve the beauty needs of all women.
Skin care has come a long way since 1926, and Academie has proven its effectiveness as a long standing, well trusted partner in the world of aesthetics and skin care. In 2011, Academie Scientifique was awarded the coveted H. Pierantoni Innovation Prize at the Congrès des Nouvelles Esthétiques held in Paris, France. The jury of this prestigious award is comprised of doctors, journalists, master estheticians, and cosmetologists who test and study the products, looking for formulations that are capable of transforming the practice. Having this award speaks volumes for the company and their recent innovations..
